Log in


AWCB is an organization of like-minded Expats from around the world, who have made their home in the Brussels Region and seek to make purposeful connections with each other while providing philanthropic support to both local and global charities. On April 5, 1949, the American Women’s Club of Brussels, an asbl/vzw non-profit organization was founded by 36 American women. We have evolved to have a membership of over 100 multinational members which includes both men and women of over 50 nationalities  who share  the American spirit.


We empower and support new, established, and alumni Expats by providing them with:

  • Create a welcoming and supportive community where members and their families share interest in American Culture and the English language.
  • Provide social, cultural and philanthropic activities to help our members and their families achieve their fullest potential.
  • Support from other members to navigate through all the ins and outs of living in Belgium.
  • Encourage an awareness and understanding of Belgian culture.


The AWCB offers a variety of social, cultural and philanthropic events to its members. We celebrate American holidays, Belgian holidays, and have a wide variety of offerings which are geared for friends, couples and families. With so many events available - there are many opportunities for learning, exploring and most of all creating new friendships. Over the past few years we have also created partnerships with several other clubs in the area with whom we share events to broaden our offerings.



Philanthropy is the core of American Women’s Club of Brussels. Humanitarian Outreach Program and Events (HOPE) is one of the founding pillars of the AWCB, committed to make a difference by offering members meaningful service opportunities in the local community.   We are also part of, and actively support charitable efforts of the Federation of American Women's Clubs Overseas (FAWCO), which is a United Nations accredited NGO with the mission to improve the lives of girls and women globally.
